It's been two weeks since I last posted, read a blog or even answered much email. For those who follow my blog routinely, you know that Drama Teen has been recovering from surgery to repair her ACL. That's been a rocky road for her, as function doesn't come back immediately. It's hard to be young and unable to do such simple tasks such as getting on the bus after school.
An even harder blow came on the 11th. My slightly zany, much beloved mother-in-law passed away. Her funeral was this last Thursday. Though we all knew her diagnosis was terminal, none of us thought it would happen this quickly. Everyone had anticipated at least one more holiday season with her.
My MIL loved tulips, her spring beds always inspired a lot of photographs. She loved photographs too, we spent a lot of time during our visits passing around everyone's photographs. I'll miss those times the most.
It will be awhile before we find a new balance, but we are all working on it. I've missed seeing what everyone is up too. I'm slowly catching up reading everyone's blogs, though I'm not commenting much on the older posts.
